Bus Station in Vancouver

The bus station in Vancouver operates from the Pacific Central Station which is a building shared with the trains that run east/west across Canada and north/south from Vancouver to Seattle and all the way south to California.

In all the terminal is home to Via Rail, Amtrak, and Greyhound and Pacific Coach Lines (Greyhound and Pacific Coach are inter-city bus lines)

Many people travel on both the trains and greyhound buses from all over North America to Vancouver.

The bus station is in a lovely heritage building that's actually quite big and operates a full Greyhound Bus service center and full Via Rail service.

Train Service

Taking the train from the station is a bit like taking a flight from the Vancouver airport.

Passengers from Vancouver to Seattle on Amtrak go through a U.S. Border style x-ray clearance before entering the train platform.

This works great and saves hours because then the train just sails acros the border.

The train and bus station in Vancouver tends to get busy around the holidays will all be extra busy during the Vancouver Olympics in 2010.

Pacific Central Station is adjacent to the skytrain station and a short taxi to many downtown Vancouver hotels like:

There's not much in the way of places to sit and relax at the bus station but if you have some time to kill one of the best Vancouver coffee shops called the Safari Café is just 2 short blocks from the bus terminal.

Adam who owns the shop makes a wicked latte and can always answer any question you might have.
